He has shown evidence of a different, caring side too
It's a bit naff but so what? It's quirky, at the very least...
They've never had so much publicity! Outraged liberals can give practical support by popping in and spending a fiver on three weetabix with jelly tots topping.
Even better publicity for CW Never seen so many spluttering tuts and seethings
jelly & ice cream when the cereal bar closes.
"If they dare set foot near my cat emporium, I'll write a strongly worded letter to my MP"
They're genius at it.
I suppose my line on the Cereal Bar thing would be do they pay the living wage and do they employ local people.
Mine would be "where are the fucking Grape Nuts, you cunts"
Significantly different, not least because of the opening hours. I doubt, for example, that the CKC gets a lot of custom from cabbies and other shiftworkers, or from observant Jews.
But they are, for the largest part, now a "hipster" (read trendy young person) late night food joint now, no?
No it's not. There's no corner. They're on the same road.
It was only a rumour that Brick Lane Bagels sold salt beef bagels to Yahweh.
This is a bit tedious - the cat cafe and the cereal cafe are not on the same road.
Care to differ?
Nope. There may be "hipsters" using them at certain times, but they're hardly dependent on the skinny-jeaned brigade for their livelihood.
I thought you meant the bagel shops. I'm very tired. I'll let you have that one.
They're 24 hours, aren't they?
Admittedly, the only time I've been to either of them and have been prepared to wait in the queue, which is normally huge, is late at night and most of the members of that queue look like they would fall into the "hipster" basket, not the shift worker, or the cab driver, and almost certainly not the observant Jew.
Maybe, that's a wrong impression but I have also gone there from time to time to pick up a beigel for lunch during work and the queues have been comparatively minor and the demographic much less "hipster"-ish but my strong impression is that these guys make a lot of, if not most, of their money out of the terrible "hipsters" who might dare to visit the Cereal Killer cafe just down the road.
The bagel places have always served a younger crowd late at night, people used to get cabs halfway across the city to go there in the middle of the night
Is this another 'when I was doing some pro bono stuff for my clients late one night in that part of town…' moment coming?
(Nevermind, caught up on the thread now)

Jane Jacobs would turn in her grave at 99.9% of the complete and utter drivel that is this thread!

Invented Jacob's Cream Crackers, obviously.

Sounds like a prime candidate for an HBO drama series.
